Deathstar Droid Replica RA-7 protocol droid

The DEATHSTAR droid project began for me in about 2002 when I had some free time on my hands. No one had ever attempted a lifesize replica so I set to it.  He's also known as an RA-7 protocol droid.

RA-7 (aka Deathstar Droid, aka Bugdroid) has two different incarnations:  A resin cast kit, and a thermal formed kit with resin details.
Here is the resin cast-version:

The RESIN CAST kit includes:

  • Helmet shell (resin cast, hollow, not-wearable)
  • Visor (clear or white plastic)
  • Resin chin
  • Metal antenna
  • 2 resin-cast neckbolts
  • Forehead Medallion (resin cast)
  • 2 tusks (resin casts)
  • resin details

  • Right side shell

  • Metal antenna
  • 2 resin-cast neckbolts

 HOW IT WAS MADE:

 

With the help of a local denver sculptor, Mr. Tim King, we set about creating this unique character.  Below you can see the original sculpt.

 

 

 

 This is the result of the molding and casting sessions:

 

 

 

 

 I coordinated with my auto body paintshop to have one professionally painted. Here's the result. Contact me if you'd be interested in a raw kit.
